DOE Batteries and Energy Storage Hub Includes Berkeley Lab

Berkeley Lab is part of the team that will receive up to $120 million over five years to advance next-generation battery and energy storage technologies for electric and hybrid cars and the electricity grid. The hub, to be known as the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), will combine the R&D firepower of five DOE national laboratories, five universities, and four private firms in an effort aimed at achieving revolutionary advances in battery performance. Venkat Srinivasan (pictured) of EETD will lead the Lab’s involvement with the hub. More>
